The Sport of Fencing

Fencing is the fastest combat sport there is. It combines speed, agility, reflexes, stamina, and strategy.


Despite this, it doesn’t take long to acquire the skills where you can enjoy fencing others at your own level, and from there, improvement is made at whatever speed your coaching and practice will allow.

There are three weapons used in modern fencing. In all three weapons, the aim is to score a number of “hits” or “touches” on the valid target of you opponent. Each weapon has a different target area, and the rules for scoring hits are also different.
